Grosse Pointe Shores, Park, Farms and City police officers assisted Monday night in a pursuit down Lake Shore Road that ended with the arrest of two men believed to be responsible for robbing an 85-year-old woman in the parking lot of a St. Clair Shores Kroger. The pursuit was not particularly fast but rather at a reasonable speed, Shores Det. Sgt. Scott Rohr said.

The Grosse Pointe Farms City Council approved the 60-foot tower and a camera to monitor Lake St. Clair for illegal immigrants trying to enter the country but Border Patrol also wants a radar.
Despite concerns voiced by residents of Rose Terrace Street, a 60-foot tower with several embellishments has been installed behind the Grosse Pointe Club for the eventual monitoring of Lake St. Clair for illegal immigrants trying to enter the country. A 60-foot tower was approved by the Grosse Pointe Farms council as a special variance to the normal height restriction of 55 feet. The tower, as presented to the city council, is intended to hold a high-powered camera as a measure of border security. Lake St. Clair is bordered by the United States and Canada, which is close enough to the Grosse Pointes and Detroit that it can be seen across the lake.
